justintimberlake0920.jpgJustin Finally Blabs About Britney
On yesterday’s Oprah, JT reveals that he’ll always have love for the messed up star, but doesn’t know how she ended up in the rough spot she’s in today. How about millions of dollars and Cheetos? [Us Weekly]

Kate Moss Sucks at Fashion

Charlie Sheen Battles Ex for Kids

Austin City Limits Festival Report

Bjork

Eight stages. 132 bands. 65,000 fans to contend with. Set on the sweltering Texas fields of Zilker Park, making the most of the bands playing this year?s Austin City Limits Festival on a barbecue-filled stomach was no easy feat, but the chance to see My Morning Jacket, Bjork, Common, Andrew Bird, Cold War Kids and hundreds of others was too enticing not to try. Without further delay, here’s the full report from the festival frontlines.

Hottie of the Week: Mya

Mya
Photo_20x9_1 All Mya Photos

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Mya, the R&B songstress who’s collected more Moonmen than NASA and Jim Carrey combined. Her fourth studio album, Liberation, has been in the works since 2004, and finally has a release date later this fall, so expect to see a lot more of her as the weather turns colder. With guest spots from Snoop Dogg and Lil Wayne, and the production and songwriting talents of such gents as Scott Storch and Brian Michael Cox, the album already sounds like a runaway success.

That’s exactly what you’d expect from Ms. Mya, who stormed the charts in the late ’90s. She sealed her place in pop-culture history with “Lady Marmalade” and its Moulin Rouge tie-in video, which featured Christina Aguilera, Lil Kim, Mya and Pink, each of whom was wearing frilly, lacy items of clothing people normally associate words like “boudoir” and “Paris.” Following that, she told us how “My Love Is Like . . . Wo,” and she signed a six-figure modeling contract. It’s easy to understand why. Check out these pics to see.

Time for Fiddy to Pack His Things

50-cent0919.jpgWhat is a man without his word? Either someone famous said that or I just totally made it up – but methinks it’s kinda true. And just over a month ago the words out of 50 Cent‘s mouth were “If Kanye West sells more records than 50 Cent on September 11, I?ll no longer [perform] music. I?ll write music and work with my other artists, but I won?t put out any more solo albums.”

Last night it became official that Mr. Arrogant Tantrum-Thrower whupped Fiddy’s ass in the first week of record sales for their albums, selling 957,000 copies to Fiddy’s 691,000. So we’re sad to say, it’s time for ol’ Curtis to pack up his Vitamin Waters and get the eff out of town. Time to head back to the ol’ Connecticut mansion, climb in bed with the 10 luxury cars and call it a day. There’s nothing left for you here, 50! We still love you, but come on. You dug your own grave on this one, so go lie in it. Even the Times is saying it’s a high point for Kanye and a low point for Curtis.

And hey, Kanye already did your eulogy! He said at a concert last night, “I feel bad about beating 50, but I feel good about being number one.”

RIP 50 Cent’s Career.

Britney’s Bad Parenting Finally Busted

britney0919.jpgYesterday the judge in the Britney-Kevin custody battle handed down his ruling, and damn does it paint Brit in a bad light! Here’s what the trashy exes gotta do to keep their kids:

  • No smack talking
  • No Vegas trips without each other’s consent
  • No spanking or other forms of skin smacking punishment
  • Must attend counseling and “Parenting Without Conflict” program
  • No getting hammered or high 12 hours prior to taking the kids

But Brit gets an even worse deal, cuz she’s kinda the worse parent. She’s gotta go to individual counseling, meet with a parenting coach, and get drug tested twice a week (the judge thinks she’s got a problem, natch). Snap! But Brit don’t care – she went out and got sh*tfaced last night at a couple of LA clubs. Sorry Sean and Jayden – mommy needs her “bottle” just as much as you kiddies do – maybe more. Betcha can’t wait for those tests to start! [Image: Getty]

Surely climbing over a six-foot metal fence and flashing your scantily clad crotch is helping the world in some way, right? [Cityrag]

Vanessa Hudgens Slapped with Suit
First there were naked pics, now her lawyer is suing the High School Musical star for unpaid fees. Someone’s been studying the Britney Spears book of botched career moves closely! [People]

Rock on TV – The Timbersnake Rides Again

jt.jpgJonesing for music on your television set? You?ve come to the right place, rockers! Check out our shortlist below. For more extensive listings, read VH1?s Rock on TV schedule daily.

Justin Timberlake: FutureSex/LoveShow, 11:30 p.m. (EST), HBO2: It’s not TV — it’s J.T. The other half of “D*ck in a Box” returns to the boob-tube in this repeat of his televised concert. Women want him and men want to be him; you can watch as the former Mickey Mouse clubber borrows liberally from Michael Jackson, Timbaland and Broadway, dicing up all his influences into a particularly delicious chopped market salad that is unlike any other salad out there today. Actually, there are other salads out there, but few of them own restaurants, dated Britney Spears and have trouble with the spacebar. FutureSex? Someone get Justin and Gwen Stefani together. They need to learn them some grammar.

The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, 11:35 p.m. (EST), NBC: Jay welcomes Dane Cook, Ali Larter and LCD Soundsystem to the show tonight. Dane, of course, is in this week’s entry into the Worst Comedy of All Time, Good Luck Chuck. Ali is the star of Heroes and on the cover of this month’s Cosmo, which promises readers insights into the “blended orgasm” and secret knowledge of crazy sex acts that “he wants you to do to him there.” LCD Soundsystem is alter-ego of DFA Records honcho James Murphy. He writes shiny pop songs that like to dress up in underground credibility. But make no mistake. They are big shiny pop tunes.

Hayden’s Fashion and Dating Faux Pas

haydenface.jpgSo this is what happens, huh. Girl gets on a super popular TV show, turns eighteen, dumps her bland reality TV boyfriend for her co-star and shows up at the Emmys in a dress concocted out of shimmery wrapping paper. Bravo! Apparently Heroes star Hayden Panettiere is now dating her thirty-year old co-star Milo Ventimiglia. The two were not only spotted getting cuddly, but Milo was seen cutting Hayden’s meat for her at an Emmy’s dinner. His tender, fatherly ways creep up out almost as much as Hayden’s dress.
